3:00 am
see you back here tomorrow. "fox & friends" starts right now. ainsley is down there. bye. good morning. it is tuesday, september 16. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. we start with a fox news alert. overnight the u.s. carried out another round of airstrikes against isis just outside of baghdad, this on the heels of a serious warning to syrian president bashar al-assad. do not shoot down our planes or we will attack. we are live from washington. >> it's a shocking allegation. the department of state accused it is secretly destroying benghazi documents to protect hillary clinton, who was then secretary of state. the latest coverup the administration does not want you to hear about; we're going to tell you about. >> a tasteless take to a whole new level.
3:01 am
urban outfitters has a kent state sweatshirt with blood splattered on it and holes. wait until you hear how they try to explain this one away. mornings are better with friends. >> you're watching "fox & friends," and, by the way, happy anniversary, elisabeth hasselbeck. >> that's right, ladies and gentlemen. it was one year ago today we got a new couch. >> yeah. >> and a new cohost. >> this has been an incredible year. thank you both for the opportunity. and you guys treat me like a sister. you all treat me like a friend and i could not be more thankful to fox news, roger ailes and everybody on this floor. best, best year ever, better with friends and thank you for you all. thank you for letting me be in your breakfast/kitchen room. >> since you brought that up, talking about all the maces people watch -- pleases people watch fox
3:02 am

3:03 am
president bashar al-assad not to talk our planes. peter doocy is live in washington with the latest details. good morning to you, peter. what do we know this morning? >> reporter: there is a new warning for syrian president bashar al-assad ahead of increased action in the skies above his country as senior administration officials now say the united states knows where its military keeps their air defense systems. and if those guns take aim and fire on u.s. warplanes carrying out missions against isis, then assad's systems will be targeted. >> we are not going to be working with the assad regime or to be sharing our plans with them, as we have in have not in the past, as you know, because we think the people we're going to be working with are the moderate opposition in syria. >> on capitol hill there will be a debate on the measure to give the president permission to arm syrian rebels as long as the president reports back to capitol hill about how
3:04 am
it's going. but some lawmakers are worried the white house isn't willing to go far enough to fight isis. >> the free syrian army is being attacked by both bashar al-assad and by isis, and they have suffered hundreds of casualties at the hands of both. i know that they are not giving up their foit. i know we can make them strong and resilient. but arming and equipping 5,000 a year in the face of a 30,000-man army means that the united states of america is not serious. >> the first thing on the president's schedule today is an oval office meeting with retired marine general john allen who is now working as a special envoy to the coalition against isis. >> thanks a lot, peter. on this whole operation, this is like splitting hairs. we're going to be threading a needle because there is a danger of us being assad's air force. this is a danger of us
3:05 am
wiping out isis to our benefit and safety but to the ultimate benefit of iran and assad because they would survive and they would thrive in a reformed iraq and an empowered assad. how are we doing this? training the pharmacists and doctors and dentists as the president described in saudi arabia is going to take years. >> there is a line between conversation, communication and coordination with iran. there seems to be a blurred line there as well and danger as you mentioned brian. >> we've got details of a story. it is a scandal in d.c. that threatens to derail hillary clinton. new explosive revelations from cheryl attkisson, former investigative reporter at cbs. she has now uncovered the fact that a fellow who was the former deputy assistant secretary at the department of state, a man by the name of raymond maxwell, he was so incensed by hearing
3:06 am
what's going on in the defense of the benghazi probe that the a.i.b. had unfettered access to all the documents, he has come forward and saying that is not true because one weekend he went into the department of state and there was one of the people who work for him -- this was after-hours on a weekend -- in a room not normally gone to. all the benghazi documents were in the room, and the charge was this: find anything that makes hillary or anybody on the seventh floor that looks back, take it out and give it to one of hillary's pals. >> according to attkisson's investigation. we're going to speak to her at 7:15. her exclusive information coming to you on this bombshell when she says we're going to go through these stacks and put anything in the near eastern affairs department, which is what he was a part of, front office or the seventh noor in a bad light -- seventh floor in a
3:07 am
bad light in the baseman level, though he says he was not invited to go to the basement level. there was zero coverage of it last night on abc, news and cbs. >> that is so weird because cheryl attkisson used to work at cbs. you would think they would be interested in it, but no. >> everyone is tuned out of benghazi right now and that pales -- it -- >> we're not. >> hope people are paying attention to the special prosecutor -- not the special prosecutor but the select committee that is going to start tomorrow with their hearing that is going to go for about three months. you know who should be most outraged about everybody? admiral mullen and thomas pickering, two of the members of the a.r.b. they said wait, i have my reputation on this. i told everyone there is no there there. now they found out they didn't get efg they needed for this investigation, they should be calling a press conference because
3:08 am
they have embarrassed them. >> admiral mullen doesn't look good in this because it is reported he apparently contacted your witnesses isnd said not very good. pickering said i never would have done that. but the fact that it is not being covered by any of the mainstream media aside from fox just depicts the hypocrisy here and how mainstream media are trying to protect hillary, so says dr. charles krauthammer. >> this is really serious. this is a coverup. imagine somebody stumbled in on the nixon administration in a warehouse or in a basement in the state department sorting documents. that would have been on the "post" front page for seven days in a row. if it comes out in testimony as opposed to a news report, it will be very significant. >> it will be significant. and the key is in this cheryl attkisson report, there are other people in the room who doubtless will be called to testify. mr. raymond maxwell has already been deposed by the
3:09 am
select committee. look for him as one of the first witnesses. >> from something that is not going to be sitting well with the american people now that they're hearing about it, because they didn't on the other networks last night to this. completely tasteless story. urban outfitters selling a throw back, a kent state sweatshirt with bloodstains on it. apologized saying this is not what they wanted for publicity but to go back to 1970 and allude to a time when four students shot dead, nine injured after 150 were being called to go to war and the college was going to be shut down at the time because of the they the. they said this happens to be the natural wearing of the sweatshirt. >> you notice the natural red. i guess it sold like crazy until it got pulled back.
3:10 am
>> one person who purchased it was attempting to sell it for ten times the amount on ebay. >> urban outfitters has a history of coming out with t-shirts they think are clever and they put them on the market and then have to apologize for them. >> the average person who shops there is fairly young. the person who put them out there is banking on the fact would perhaps miss the message. >> there are so many people who don't know the story of kent state. >> that is a cool ohio school. i think i'll buy that shirt. >> we've got a busy morning on this tuesday. ainsley earhardt is in with us, and we start with weather. >> we do. an extreme weather alert for you. warning: millions of people in the southeast about a tropical storm headed your way. odile. the storm hit lucas with

scotland is split. yes, a big vote this week across the pond. scotland considering a split from the u.k. to become its own independent nation. british prime minister david cameron warned to scotland what would happen if they vote yes. >> it would mean half of scottish mortgages suddenly from one day to the next being provided by banks in a foreign country. it would mean that interest rates in scotland are no longer set by the bank of england with all the stability and security that promises. and it would mean for any banks that remain in scotland, if they ever got into trouble, it would be scottish taxpayers and scottish taxpayers alone that would bear the costs. >> what would the consequences be for the u.s.? here to explain why it matters to us, stuart varney. stuart, it would be bad for
3:18 am
the u.k. but good for us? how? >> because a scottish independent vote, if they say yes, we're splitting apart, we're separate, that would create enormous instability especially in the u.k. and for all of europe. instability anywhere in the world means hot money flows to america. the most stable, the country with real growth, a stable democracy. the money comes here. you could say an independent scotland, a vote for that would mean the money comes here. that would be good for america in a certain sense. but this instability it would create is bad news for everybody. >> scotland saying we want to be on our own. we have a lot of oil revenue, we're an established nation. we even have our own soccer team. we'll still be friends with england. >> that is par for the course. got that. but what currency are they going to use? the euro or new currency of their own.

what are they going to do? they don't know. are they going to be a member of the european union? if they vote for independence they're out of the e.u. and would have to reapply. what about all those independence movements across europe? the dutch speakers in belgium, they want to be separate. that creates enormous instability in europe at a time when they're all in recession and half of them are bankrupt. >> what are the ramifications to england's economy should this vote go against them? >> for england's economy, again, it is the uncertainty and anxiety of separation. >> what do they counter them with? >> nato has -- the british have the trident submarine with nuclear weapons on board. they are based in scotland. scotland has said we don't want nukes. if we go independent, we want those nukes out. where are they going to go? >> who gets the oil? and what steve wants to
3:20 am
know most of all, who gets the scotch? >> the scotch will still be a product of the world but the oil is debatable. how much of the former parent country goes to great britain? how much to scotland? it is total uncertainty. i hope they don't do it. >> it is unbelievable we have to fight for our freedom. they get to vote for theirs. >> the same people. >> from 11 to 1, what are you going to be doing? >> a lot of on the scottish independent vote. big deal. >> stuart, great to see you. ten minutes before the bottom of the hour. coming up straight ahead, it is a myth of conservative women. they're meek and only defer to men. our next guest says no and she's here to prove the change in the perception. >> did the gold fish really go under the knife to avoid the final thrush? ♪ ♪

i'm simplifying it. now the president says he's threatening the government of syria if they interfere with his degrading of isisant a lot of people support him. by what legal authority can he do it? a week after his speech, he has yet to ask the congress for a declaration of war. he referred to the authorization to use military force enacted by congress in 2002 to let president bush go after the people who planned and motted -- planned and plotted 9/11. isis didn't exist pre-9/11. this resolution of 2002 cannot authorize his war against isis and he can't do it on his own for more than 180 days. so where does he get his legal authority from? he has to go to congress. why doesn't he want to go to congress? two reasons. congress will put handcuffs on him and say you can't fight a war forever. here's how we would like you to fight it and get it over with. two, the president has a
3:48 am
base on the left side of the political spectrum. he'd rather fight a war without talking about it like a secret war using drones rather than a war the public understands. he's caught in between. he's going to have to come clean one way or another. >> there is delicious irony. this administration as recently as july has been talking about getting rid of this resolution. oh, we need something. let's just use that thing from the back of the rack. >> i think that the congress for the first time in american history will enact legislation authorizing war, and the president will not have asked for it. presidents always go i need to fight this war, here's the parameters. give me a resolution. the resolution says fight. here's how it ends. they're going to do it without his asking and he may not like the end point. >> if he does use that resolution from 2002, he can say thank you george bush, again. >> yes, he can. but that resolution today is very, very doubtful, has
3:49 am
very, very doubtful legal authority and he's acknowledged that. >> they're good at that, this administration. judge napolitano thank you very much. wise words once again. straight ahead, another innocent person beheaded by isis, and the president hits the golf course. what does jim foley's parents, what do they think about that? >> we're just disappointed as americans. we think our country can do better. >> more from our heartfelt interview with the foley family in the next hour. the top dogs at olive garden fighting with their own board over bread sticks. now they're comparing the fan favorite to the other great italian masterpieces like sophia loren. ♪ ♪

4:02 am
we're going to see if we learned anything in the last year. >> one thing we couldn't have anticipated maybe going back to iraq for a war a year ago, but that's exactly what we're talk being today. the latest chapter in our let's put together a coalition and fight isis, i guess, were we reaching out to iran? that's confirmed by the state department that we pulled them over when we were in new talks saying by the way, we both don't like isis. >> some common ground here? i didn't even know we could do that. we haven't established relations with them. i didn't think the president was reaching out to do that. we might have to worry about it because the ayatollah tweeted back. >> he sure has. on twitter he said this: i reject u.s. offer to #iran about #isis because u.s. has corruption on its hands in the issue. >> yeah. john kerry ruled out that we were going to cooperate with syria and also iran, but then dc
4:03 am
did acknowledge in the back channels we got the door wide open trying o talk to them. so what does the ayatollah do? he absolutely puts a pie in mr. kerry's face and the administration's face by saying, yeah, what they're doing behind the scenes that you don't know about, we don't agree with. meanwhile, brit hume talks a little bit in this sound bite about us relying on iran to help with isis. >> i think the last thing the united states needs to be doing is making common cause with iran in the middle east about anything. this is a country whose nuclear arsenal, if it goes forward, is as great a threat to the peace of the world as anything we can possibly imagine. if the president were to do with iran what he did with putin in syria, it seems that would make it very difficult for him to act against iran on nuclear weapons. similarly, one can only hope that we won't end up being relying on vladimir putin for
4:04 am
help in syria once again. once again making common cause with somebody who does not mean us well. >> if we blow out isis and we do it with the cooperation of iran and syria, we should just save our weaponry. it is not worth it. if you're going to let those two countries dominate a region, you'll bring in more strikes because other nations like saudi arabia, uae and other nations are going to look at that as a problem. so you're going to still have a divide and a massive war, proxy as it might in that area. and for the state department to come back and say, we are not and will not coordinate militarily, the answer is yeah, you may not because they don't want to. it should have been because we haven't reached out. >> what brit hume just said really gets to the heart on leadership, its partnership with those who have the united states' best interests at heart when it comes to isis and crushing them not as a means to then come back and get us long-term. i thought what he said had a great heart to it. >> what's going to happen? john kerry over in paris, he does speak french -- and at that
4:05 am
meeting, 26 countries agreed to fight isis, but they didn't really explain what they were going to do. no arab countries have offered to join the military campaign. the problem is saudi arabia and jordan and also the uae, they are sunni countries and they are reluctant because if they join the fight with the united states, the air strikes could actually benefit shiite governments, which we're talking about iran and syria and also iraq. so in other words, we've gotten into this. we're trying to get a coalition together to fix things over there. but actually we've gotten into a bigger, more deep feud between the factions over there. >> evidently the uae says we'll give you air strikes and jordan says we'll give you troops. but evidently they don't want to tell everybody they're doing it. >> something else completely tasteless, urban outfitters selling throwback kent state
4:06 am
sweatshirts with blood stains on it, causing uproar. they ended up apologizing, saying this isn't exactly what we intended here. but i think that the critics out here saying that is offensive really indicating that the people purchasing it may not remember 1970. there was a lot of bloodshed on the campus in the 1970s. there were four killed, nine injured. 500 campus -- 5,000 universities shut down because of it. this is a big deal and urban outfitters, the blood stain on the sweatshirt. >> and the holes symbolize bullet holes. >> they stay is just the color of the shirt, the natural wearing. >> so urban outfitters has apologized and that is their vintage kent state sweatshirt. but kent state said this: we take great offense to a company using our pain for the publicity and profit.
4:07 am
this item is beyond poor taste and trivializes a loss of life that still hurts the kent state community today. when you look at that and it says kent state and you see the blotches of the red, the company says that's not supposed to be blood, it sure looks like it. but when you look at a lot of stuff urban outfitters has done in the past. in terrible taste also and have been taken down. >> you have the star of david shirt that they have, prototype image for shirt appeared to resemble holocaust patches as you see here. there is another shirt -- >> they took that down. >> one that had the words eat less on a t-shirt for women. that's all it said. >> so we asked you what you thought about it. clark wrote in on facebook this morning: i think they knew exactly what they were doing and it is sick. >> they're getting a lot of publicity. john says if you don't like it, don't buy it. that's true. >> but the free market. another saying i don't know

yet another big benghazi bombshell raising questions about the investigation into the september 11 attack. former state department official raymond maxwell says associates of hillary clinton were involved in a scrubbing operation of documents before they were handed over to the benghazi arb, the accountability review board. investigative journalist sheryl atkisson broke the story, joins us now live from d.c good morning to you. >> good morning. >> so state department was told put all the documents together. we're going to send them to this review board. mr. maxwell walks in on a weekend, odd hours, and there one of the people who works for him, they're scrubbing the documents. anything that makes hillary look bad, they're taking out. >> he heard about this. he heard people speaking of it and he decided to check it out for himself. so he came in on a sunday in
4:18 am
this basement room. he says underneath the drivers' entrance and asked the office detector who technically worked for him but had not been consulted about her assignment what was going on and she said we are to separate, according to him, any documents that could prove embarrassing or damaging to the 7th floor and the front office. 7th floor being secretary of state hillary clinton or top advisors. he says he asked her, isn't that unethical? and he says she replied, ray, those are our orders. >> they apparently came from the 7th floor. so he's there. he's watching. there is hillary in iowa with tom harken over the weekend. so mr. maxwell is there watching the scrubbing operation and who walks in but a couple of confidantes of hillary clinton. >> he says after he was there a few minutes, in walks secretary of state's chief of staff, sheryl mill, as well as the deputy chief of staff, jake sullivan. according to maxwell, he knew both of them. he said maybe sheryl mills
4:19 am
hadn't remembered meeting him before because she sort of snapped, who is that? that jake sullivan said that's jake maxwell and she said okay. after that he says he, the employee, the office director and an intern moved into a periphery office and sorted through some papers. the papers he looked at were telegrams and cables between the tripoli embassy and the state department that had gone back and forth in those preattack months. he says he didn't feel right about it and after a short period of time, he left. >> right. he's come forward because he's heard that the irb had unfettered access. as it turns out t looks like they got a scrubbed copy of the documents. but if the story is true, and doubtless he'll be called before the select committee, perhaps destruction of federal documents and at the very least, withholding documents from congress, those are a couple of pretty big charges. >> well, i suppose it would be
4:20 am
somewhat difficult to prove. a lot of time has gone by. people had a chance f this occurred, what's alleged, to get their story straight. documents have disappeared or gone missing in other high profile cases that we know about. we'll see if they can get to the bottom of it. but congressman jason chaffetz said yesterdayhat there could be criminal referrals coming out of something like this, depending on ha they find out. it's very serious allegation obviously. >> it is a very serious allegation and what makes it curious is fox and you and daily signal are pretty much the only ones reporting this. mainstream media has other stuff to talk about. >> let me point out, we did a piece for st. clair television, which has other networks across the country, so maybe 30 million local news viewers got to see the report as well. >> that's good news. sheryl atkisson joining us from d.c keep up the good reporting. >> thank you. >> you bet. 20 minutes after the top of the hour. has standardized testing gone too far? one teacher hayes yes and riskee

4:26 am
administer the test. we were told to do it one on one and the children were this year going to be using a computer to take it using a math. with logistics of that, plus the new test format, it worked out it was going to take about a week of instructional time to test one class with no provision of what to do with the other 17 children in the class. so that would be two weeks and we administer it three times a year. so now we're talking about six weeks of instructional time lost. i just felt that was just wrong. so i took a stand. >> that was meaningful math that you did to benefit the kids and you came out victorious. but you actually went through facebook. why did you think it was important to reach out that way? >> i think just to get the word out so that it would be heard and i don't know. god kind of led me through this whole thing. so i feel like i was being

>> the school is doing everything they can to keep things safe and keep the kids safe on school property. >> some parents are saying it's over the line to test the kids who do not show any signs of being drunk. what do you think? send us y e-mail. those are your headline. >> thank you very much. let's go out to the streets of new york city. maria molina joins us and it feels like fall here in new york city. >> that's right. good morning. it does feel like fall. here in new york city, we just had the rain start. we're seeing those showers not only across new york city, but also up and down the i-95 corridor as a cold front continues to move eastward. behind that system expect to see another shot of cool air making it feel like fall yet again. i want to take you now to parts of the southwestern united states because out there we have big concerns for flash flooding. we're tracking tropical storm odile moving through central portions of the baha, california peninsula, producing very heavy rain out there. locally up to 18 inches of rain are forecast. the center of circulation with
4:37 am
the storm eventually will be moving over parts of southern arizona. especially late wednesday night into early thursday morning. so there are big concerns for flooding out there. you can already see on the radar earlier that we were already seeing those showers moving into the region, parts of new mexico and arizona. those flash flood watches are in effect and more than four-inches locally will be possible in some of those areas. just about a week ago, we picked up a little more than three inches in phoenix and we saw cars being washed away and rescues being held out there. so this is going to be a huge concern yet again over the next several days out there in the southwest. otherwise as we look at the radar, you can see the showers in the northeast and temperature wise, feeling like fall across parts of the great lakes and midwest. let's head back inside. >> backyard is full of leaves already. thank you very much. >> i'll get right on that, steve. >> please do. you've seen the billboards and trailers for weeks and it's almost here. we got a sneak peek of the tv series "gotham" in new york city last night. here to tell us what we can
4:38 am
expect from the series is fox news contributor and founder of nerdtears.com, kevin mccarthy. >> honestly, as a kid i dreamed of living in new york city, but to be at a premiere in new york city for a batman show and then on the show with you this morning is an honor to be here. >> is batman in it or just people around batman? >> he's not in the show whatsoever, at least in the first season. this is an origin city of gothham, the city that created the heres and villains. it centers around detective jim gordon. gary oldman played him in the dark knight film. he takes on bruce wayne family. this is an earlier version. we'll see the characters who become the riddler, who become the joker, who become penguin. this first season focuses primarily on the rise of the penguin. >> isn't it kind of sad that we can't get off these comic strips and make a movie, just making a movie that doesn't have to be something from dc comics? >> right now we're in day where it's all about franchises and
4:39 am
comic books. >> no kidding. >> those are the money makers. everybody knows what avengers has done. i spoke one actress, whose character is brand new. what's funny is i spoke to her yesterday in washington, d.c. via satellite and i'm a big heavy metal fan. i grew up on iron maiden and she's a big metal fan as well. she said she was going to find me on the carpet. we have a photo of us doing our heavy metal -- here we are. she found me on the carpet. we talked about this new character that she plays in the show and whether or not she's nervous about these fans because you never know. here it is. check it out. >> good morning. >> it's all about metal this morning.
4:40 am
>> yeah! because this is an area that has not been explored yet, our dc fans have to be open to be introduced to new characters from that world that has yet to be explored. >> as you can see, we're in the same exact suit i wore last night. i haven't slept. >> she seems confident and hopeful. i think if anyone could do it, she can do it. >> totally great. i grew up on her in many films. this show premoores on monday, september 22 at 8:00 p.m. on fox, i had to talk to some of the fans about your one year anniversary. they have a little special shout out for you. check it out. >> congratulations, elisabeth. what a ride! >> congratulations one year on the show. >> happy one year anniversary from our premiere party here for "go a.m."
4:41 am
>> congratulations, girl! >> elisabeth hasselbeck, happy one-year anniversary on the show. >> elisabeth hasselbeck, one year, baby. >> the people you're seeing, that was the guy who played penguin. the kid played bruce wayne. the other guy was the riddler. as the show unfolds on fox, it's interesting to see who the characters are. they are a fan of elisabeth hasselbeck. >> i don't get out much, so i feel like i was at the premiere. thank you for doing that. >> i will give you a preview of the show. the first episode is incredible. i think shows like "breaking bad" and "house of cards" are some of the best shows i've seen. right now all the actors want to be on television. this show really, really, really surprised me. the first episode is fantastic. >> could anything match "b.j. and the bear" at their zenith? >> that's a tough one. >> i mean, that's true. >> that's a tough one. i'm with you on that. >> think about it. >> it's no "breaking bad," but
4:42 am
it's definitely up there. >> happy one year anniversary. >> very nice of you to bring the flowers. >> get some rest. coming up, the controversy surrounding adrian peterson is not cooling off. another accusation. i love this. actor bill murray quickly becoming the biggest party crasher of his generation. move over, mr. vaughn. >> first your pictures are pouring in. how do you make your mornings better with friends? john tunes in while driving his truck listening on satellite radio. >> nice shot. >> katherine writes, mornings at the gym are #betterwithfriends. they sure are. >> you're on everybody's mantle. >> she's doing air squats. th you for a second.

got some headlines for you on this tuesday morning. the caught on camera edition. an air show takes a turn for the worse. look. oh, boy. the plane crashing right into the ocean in guatemala. somehow the pilot managed to walk away alive. only minor injuries. i got a feeling he's not going to do that again. actor bill murray quickly becoming one of the greatest party crashers of his generation . he knows words just like all of us. the star caught on camera at a birthday party in south carolina. party goers say the caterer is his friend. marie's birthday is this friday, so the host let bill murray blow
4:47 am
out candles on the cake. happy birthday in advance, bill murray. >> let us bring you up to date on the latest with adrian peterson. he's been accused of child abuse, grand jury found him and indicted him after an incident happened in may. but believe it or not, he's got now four-year-old child with a different mother and she's got an accusation of the same thing. hitting the child. the kid had a bruise on his head. because he didn't cause the bruise directly, he probably is not going to face charges in texas. bottom line is, the situation grows around adrian peterson. >> will he play? >> will he play? last week, the owner said preemptive strike, we're pulling him off. even though the indictment was out. this week i'm not sure -- they said you can play. >> his trial has been moved, first court appearance for this allegation to october 8 because his attorney is apparently out of the country? >> yeah. >> so he's gog have a delay of
4:48 am
game there and maybe some more answers there follow. this is really -- this has brought up a ton of controversy where spanking meets beating, is discipline to blame? is the nfl to blame? a lot of heat surrounding this topic. >> michael willbond from espn was talk being how a lot of people grow up and he offered up this observation regarding the switch. >> i think the decline in behavior in america is directly traceable to the lack of whipping with switches. your grandparents or your parents would let you pick your own. you snatch it off the tree, depending where you are. it's such a common thing of the it's like baking a pie. >> that's charles barkley's point exactly. he said if you grow up in the south, mostly he says to his point, he would know, he said african-american are going to be arrest ago whole lot of black families 'cause that's exactly what happened. >> i'm not sure how you can look at the photos of that young four
4:49 am
or five-year-old for -- when you see that switch -- five days later, still leaving marks. i don't know how you say that and say this is just because this is where we're from. this is what happened and now this new comment that we just read saying not enough of this is the reason why we have trouble. i think the eye is off the ball a bit when there is a ton of blame -- look, maybe the nfl could have done things differently. let us know what you think about that. but roger goodell, let's keep the eye on the ball here. roger goodell isn't being indicted for beating a child. certainly the difference between disciplining a child in various ways and spanking and abuse. this is really thrown the dust up in terms of how to even handle discipline with children. >> right. and mr. goodell has added some new team members at theful nfl to make sure they are more cognizant of things going on. >> yeah. they just need hard core rules for when this happens. put them in the books, get the unions to sign off on this and
4:50 am
this thing goes on automatic pilot. horrific acts they may or may not do in the future. >> depending on their level of play. if they're franchise player or guy who happened to make the roster, the punishment should be the same across the board. i think those changes will come to be. coming up, get paid to go to the gym. cheryl casone has those details, and the top companies hiring. >> on this date in 1989, gloria estefan had the number one song in america with "don't want to lose you." ♪ ♪ ok who woh, i do!t rolls?

overnight, the u.s. military struck at isis, southwest of baghdad. we're now up to 162 air strikes. laura ingraham joins us from our nation's capitol. laura, it's curious, eventually we're going to have to go into syria and have to try to take out isis. we made it very clear yesterday to syria, hey, if you shoot at our jets, we're going to blow you up. >> so i guess we'll be in a two-front war if that happens. so we'll be fighting against the islamic rebels and against the government of syria that's also fighting against -- >> everybody there. >> the enemy of the enemy is my enemy? >> and syria and iran benefit. >> right. >> first of all, most importantly, congratulations, elisabeth, for a year of putting up with these two guys. >> i know you well enough to know -- you're funny.
5:03 am
>> i know what it's like. with those guys, you really deserve more than just a plaque that you got from fox. >> as a tribute, you're wearing the same dress. >> guys, i'm serious. think about this, some of the same people, we're saying we got to arm the good rebels. they're the same people and a lot of them are republicans, who said that the training of the iraqi military was moving in a really positive direction. they were becoming self-sustainable, that they would be able to handle their own security issues with just a little bit of help from us. so forgive me if i'm not completely bowled over by their logic about the pro-iranian rebels who exist on the ground. i'm sure there are some good people mixed in, but i personally have very little confidence in the obama administration's ability to separate the good from the bad on the ground. you add the mix in with bashar
5:04 am
al assad saying that, well, if you come anywhere near our aircraft or our military operations, we're coming after you. i understand that would probably happen, but i think again, we have to think about what exactly we're doing in syria. in a very sober way, without regard to democrat or win or what happened under bush, but whether this quote, objective is achievable given the players on the ground, the money this is going to cost, the lack of congressional authorization to go back to war, and how unstable the middle east became after the last engagement in iraq, and how further unstable it could become if iran becomes the dominant power, which could happen if this thing tips the wrong way in syria. i'm extremely concerned. i want all these islamic state people destroyed and killed. but i'm extremely concerned about going back to war in the middle east. >> i always love when i talk to a military guy and hear their plan and they move the needle up and i think, i never thought of
5:05 am
that or never thought of this. the administration is counting on the free syrian army. john mccain loves them. general keane thet hem and says fine. you know who doesn't love them? the president! he says it's a fantasy to think they exist. they're a bunch of pharmacist, dentists and doctors. now the president says they're so good, we're going to train them in saudi arabia. now, it takes about a year and a half to train them. what do we do in the meantime? if we're going to bomb isis, fine. why don't we hit them in the middle of the town? we're bombing the fringes of the area. why are we bombing them directly? >> again, i'm not a military expert. but i do believe that the american people need to understand what the potential pitfalls are of how we're engaging in this nonwar war. at the end of this, are we going to be a stronger nation? a more secure nation? are we going to be a nation that's on a better economic track? or are we going to be further
5:06 am
degraded, more debt that we have to pay off to china? is china going to be emboldened to be able to move to where they want to? i find all of this to be incredibly disturbing. i don't really believe any of the people's comments -- i don't know about the free syrian army. i don't know if these guys are the next james madisons and thomas jeffersons. i have my severe doubts about that. i for one would not want to spend a single penny on the free syrian army or on -- in this type of foggy engagement which we're about to embark on now. so i know the world seems weird -- >> they're beheading americans. >> brian, i think we have to be very careful, right? i'm emotional about it, too. i want to go in and get them all. but that was our attitude ten years ago in iraq. we're going to get those guys. you know, it can't be just reacting because of the emotion. we have to react in a way that helps the american people and
5:07 am
our security. >> the argument was there were great gabes made in iraq and we left in a way -- >> i'm not sure about that comment either. but okay. >> you said this obviously was bugging you, this is a big deal. we want to continue to do that. so earlier steve was speaking with sheryl atkisson, investigative reporter who said the bombshell that just occurred, but no other networks were covering it about the cleaning up of documents by hillary clinton's people. >> unbelievable. >> listen to what she had to offer. >> he heard about this. he heard people speaking of it and he decided to check it out for himself. so he came in on a sunday in this basement room. he says underneath the drivers' entrance and asked the office director who technically worked for him, but he had not been consulted he says about her assignment what was going on of the she said, we are to separate, according to him, any documents that could prove embarrassing or damaging to the 7th floor and the front office. 7th floor being secretary of
5:08 am
state hillary clinton, her top advisors. >> he is raymond maxwell, long-time former deputy assistant secretary of state. he heard that they were scrubbing the documents because for that arb, accountability review board, they said put all the documents together. but before they gave them to the blue ribbon panel, they went through them piece by piece, yeah, this makes hillary looks bad. let's put that there for the shredder. >> good document for hillary. bad document for hillary. guys, first of all, we should understand, if these allegations are true and i haven't had a -- i'd love to cross examine mr. maxwell, if these allegations are true, we are talking obstruction of justice. we are talking potentially for each count of obstruction, five years in federal prison. this is not a joke. this is not a fox obsessed with benghazi. this is a civil servant who was an obama supporter, an obama contributor, donor, gave money to the obama campaign, who was
5:09 am
scapegoated, according to him again -- i'll say if it's true -- was scapegoated as one of the people responsible for the failures and security at that compound. so think about it. if by any means necessary it's a clean-up mission. remember the wolf in "pulp fiction"? remember that character, he had to clean up the bloody car? that was his job. he had to clean it up, make sure there was no evidence, right? if these people were complicit in the obstruction of this congressional investigation, that is a felony. this is no gray area there. if a person gave that order that, is obstruction of justice. this is something eric holder, who is running all around the country investigating individual police action, if eric holder was not a biased individual as i know he is when if comes to these issues, he would have a special investigator right now at the state department. i'd go to the state department's
5:10 am
counsel's office. were they there? were the lawyers at the state department in this document review? because they should have been. i don't know about this joggers entrance, it all seems kind of -- i didn't know there was a joggers entrance to the state department. but it doesn't bother me it was a weekend review because i did document productions in my old law firm. those are done sometimes on the weekends. it's a question of moving the documents aside. that is obstruction of justice if that allegation is correct. so we better see a lot more investigation and questioning of mr. maxwell on this. >> absolutely. >> i'd love to have do you that. >> i'd love to do it. i'd love to go back to the law. i'm a little rusty, but not that much. >> laura ingraham joins us once a week. today was the big day on elisabeth's anniversary. >> congratulations, elisabeth. >> thanks. >> go do your radio show now. >> all right, i will. time for the news. ainsley earhart. >> we love having you here. been such a fun year. >> i'm happy here. >> happy anniversary. let's tell but this extreme --

when it comes to combating isis, it seems president obama may be ignoring the advice his top generals. that according to the "washington post." general lloyd austin, top commander of u.s. forces in the middle east, said that his best
5:18 am
military advice was to send a modest contingent of american troops, principlely special ops to advise and assist iraqi army units in phiing the militants. obviously this is not happening. so how did the military leaders feel about being sidelined? i'm joined by general jerry boykin. what's the igsignificance and the disconnect between the white house and the pentagon? >> the president has an agenda that's really not focused on winning. it's not focused on being successful in this war that we have been in. these professionals in the military, they have only one mission and that's to fight and win the nation's wars. they are very disappointed when they see a feckless, lack luster policy from the president of the united states that squanders the blood and treasure because they've commanded those troops that have been wounded and lost their lives there. they want to win, brian.
5:19 am
>> right. so the president disagrees with his military advice. he says there needs to be some on the ground presence there with the forces, whoever they are, syrian free army, iraqi forces, kurdish. but so far the president wants them pulled back. what's the big deal with that? >> well, i don't want to have to try and explain what this president is thinking. look, first of all, we need to understand that isis is more than just a military capability. it's also a theology. when the president started his speech last week with isis is not islam, it kind of -- the rest didn't matter a whole lot because he's not recognizing what motivates this enemy to do what it does. so the whole strategy, i think is flawed. we can not destroy isis, regardless of what you may be told -- we can't destroy isis. we can hurt them. we can degrade their capabilities.
5:20 am
we can protect the kurds and in the northern part of iraq and we can do a lot of things, but we can't destroy them with the strategy that he has laid out. >> real quick, if you're a general and worked your whole life for this moment and don't agree with the policy, think it can be catastrophic, should you take off your stars and quit? >> absolutely. look, johnson, the former chief staff of the army, said his greatest regrets was thatgrets e didnnd johnson's table over the issue of activating the guard and reserve. he lived to regret it. i think some of these leaders today are going to live to regret not resigning in protest to make a statement to the american public as well as to the administration. >> general boykin, and you lived through blackhawk down and so many other years. thanks for your service and insight this morning. >> thank you, brian. good being with you. coming up straight ahead, caught on camera, the moments as her mother let's her baby's
